Read full description of the books:
Tedla is one of the "blands," an asexual class of people that exist only to serve their fellow beings.
Val is an expert on alien cultures but has never seen a bland before.
They come together after Tedla is found light-years away from its home planet—alone, isolated and suicidal. Val's mission is to help Tedla recover. But the more Val learns about the beautiful alien being, the more she discovers about the torment Tedla and its kind suffer on their planet.
Little does the rest of the universe know of the hidden world of the blands, a world that hides shocking secrets and unspeakable crimes.
Halfway Human is a mesmerizing look at an intricately created alien world which is strange and distant, yet hauntingly familiar.
“The best science fiction novel I’ve read in a long time.” — St. Louis Post-Dispatch
